Synopsis

Gary Sinise stars in this biopic of Alabama Governor George Wallace, based on the book by Marshall Frady. Wallace (Sinise), a liberal, runs for governor in Alabama in 1957, but loses after opposing the Ku Klux Klan. He then adopts a policy of racial segregation, and goes from strength to political strength. By 1972 Wallace is a contender for the presidency, but is confined to a wheelchair after a failed assassination attempt. Now a hated symbol of bigotry and racism, Wallace struggles to find the courage to admit that his policies were in fact morally wrong.
